The quality and originality of OneOme’s research and scientific insights in pharmacogenomics positions them to make a major contribution to the personalized medicine.”
“We are honored to be selected to present at this unique event, and it is further recognition of our innovative approach to identify, based on genetics, which prescriptions may have the most favorable outcomes on an individual patient basis in cardiovascular, psychiatric, oncological, pain-related, and other disorders afflicting populations around the world today,” said Troy Kopischke, co-founder and chairman of the board of OneOme. “We welcome the chance to interact with many of world’s most accomplished scientists, thought-leaders and generous philanthropic individuals and families who are all dedicated to the common cause of improving the health and lives of people around the world.”
